Tuesday, June 14, 2011      8 comments

Saturday, June 11, 2011      6 comments

No, I don't quilt, but today has been a patchwork of this and that, one thing and another - bits and pieces that somehow fit together to make A Day. There was a festival in the village (some call it 'Rose Queen' while others call it 'May Qu... Read more

I've got nearly two-dozen windows open on my computer (it is to laff) while I jump from one to another putting more ancestry together. What the hey, it's a labor of love. Not much by way of updates, except I posted resignation letters to tw... Read more

...and far between, but it was definitely another day. First, at 9 AM the realtor called to say someone wanted to see the house. After a bit of back and forth (they wanted 11 AM, we wanted 6 PM--!) we compromised at 2 PM. Himself got the gr... Read more

'member the blog-that-was-no-blog? Yes. Like this one. Himself is better, I've gotten sick - we seem to take it in turns. Lord help us if we're both ever incapacitated at the same time--! Other than that, I spent the day on Ancestry. V... Read more

Tuesday, June 07, 2011      7 comments

We had our two appointments today at the GP's. Himself saw 'the real doctor' about his neck - same Rx as last time - and I saw the practice nurse for a check to see how I'm getting on without the Rx I was taking. Remember last week when my BP wa... Read more
Day 157: ARGHHH!!!
Monday, June 06, 2011      13 comments

The usual gripes and groans: yes, it's been cloudy most of the day... yes, it's rained several times... and no, I didn't accomplish much. Monday is (as frequent readers probably recognize) grocery day. Today was not one of those awake-befor... Read more

Saturday, June 04, 2011      2 comments

Not the finale of the pictures - just of the day. I'm running late, and (tell the truth and shame the Devil, lol) I nearly forgot to do an evening blog at all. I've been on the phone to my aunt (for the better part of two hours - geez, Hims... Read more

Loading the pictures, that is, lol. I 'tested' it with changing some page-pix, and they seem to have posted okay, so we'll give this another go. On from the non-rose-garden, we wandered into the orangerie. I always think of 'orangerie' as 1... Read more
